LeBron James’ savage response to his rookie cards selling for over $2,700,000
One of James’ rookie cards sold for $1.8 million and the other went for $900,000. As expected, the Lakers star was humbled by the numbers since he grew up in poverty with his mom, but James also had a savage response.
LeBron on his rookie cards selling for $1.8 million and $900,000 – “I think that’s pretty cool. That’s the first thing. I didn’t hear those numbers much growing up. Second thing is I have 2 rookie cards of my own. So I’ll be good for a very, very long time.”

LeBron James already has generational money thanks to his insane basketball contracts and endorsements off the court. It sounds like James, though, could sell the rookie cards he has later on once he retires from the NBA and pocket even more cash.
In Game 1, Davis led the way for the Lakers with 34 points, nine rebounds and five assists in 38 minutes. James, meanwhile, put up 25 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists, coming up one assist short of yet another triple-double in the playoffs.
All signs point toward the Lakers winning this series against the Heat since Miami stars Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo are hurt and Jimmy Butler is dealing with a sprained ankle. Butler will play in Game 2, but Dragic and Adebayo are being listed as doubtful.
If James wins the title with the Lakers and takes home Finals MVP, he’ll become the first player in NBA history to win three championships and three Finals MVP awards with three different teams.
